While 5-axis machining was initially an answer to the trend towards increasingly complex work pieces, today it is increasingly promoting this development and has long been part of mass production in many industries, including aerospace, automotive, medical, toolmaking and mold making sectors. DMG MORI has been supporting these trend-setting industries with innovative manufacturing solutions for many years. The machine tool manufacturer will be showing a representative cross-section of its wide-ranging 5-axis portfolio during the Innovation Days in Chicago. A highlight of the exhibition is the DMU 50 3rd Generation. The US premiere demonstrates DMG MORI in an automated version with PH 150 pallet handling. Further models from the monoBLOCK and duoBLOCK series, a DMU 60 eVo linear as well as two ULTRASONIC machining centers and the LASERTEC 3D machines for additive manufacturing round off the 5-axis trade fair program
DMU 50 3rd Generation with PH 150: Meeting the 5-axis requirements of tomorrow
While redeveloping the DMU 50 3rd Generation, DMG MORI has managed to harmonize the modern appearance of the design with user-friendly operation. The large, smooth opening door to the work area, for example, with a width of 35 inches ensures unrestricted access from the front, even in combination with automation solutions. The table also has an ergonomic loading height of 32 inches. The optimum accessibility of the DMU 50 3rd Generation even encompasses maintenance components such as the control cabinet, fluid box, oil mist separator, heat exchanger and cooling unit.
Travel paths of 26 x 21 x 19 inches and work piece weights of up to 661 lbs. mean the DMU 50 3rd generation covers a wide range of components. Its new NC swivel-rotary table with an enlarged swivel range of -35°/+110° boosts this versatility. A rapid traverse of 42 m./min. and 30 rpm in the swivel-rotary axis ensure the dynamics for 5-axis to 5-axis simultaneous machining. In addition to the 15,000-rpm speedMASTER motor spindle, the user can also choose between motor spindles with up to a 20,000-rpm. Uniting all of DMG MORI’s expertise, the MASTER motor spindle series is characterized by high reliability and a significantly longer lifecycle compared to conventional spindles. This is the reason DMG MORI provides a 36-month warranty on the spindles in this series – without any hourly limit. Also available as an option is an expanded tool magazine with up to 120 pockets. There are 30 tool pockets in the standard version. With a PH 150 palette handling DMG MORI increases the productivity of the DMU 50 3rd Generation. It offers space for up to 24 pallets with a pallet size of ø 20 x 20 inches and a work piece weight of up to 551 lbs.
